BACKGROUND: Over the last decade, significant advances in ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) workflow have resulted in most hospitals reporting door-to-balloon (D2B) times within the 90 min standard. Few programs have been enacted to systematically attempt to achieve routine D2B within 60 min. We sought to determine whether 24-hr in-house catheterization laboratory coverage via an In-House Interventional Team Program (IHIT) could achieve D2B times below 60 min for STEMI and to compare the results to the standard primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) approach...

The impact of highly active anti-retroviral therapy (HAART) in multiple myeloma (MM) is unknown. Ten HIV+ and 28 HIV-negative patients were retrospectively identified out of 262 cases of MM diagnosed at Kings County Hospital Center since the introduction of HAART in 1996. The HIV+ MM patients on HAART had superior overall survival (OS) (Fisher exact, p=0.008; log-rank, p=0.012) and progression free survival (PFS) (Fisher exact, p=0.007; log-rank, p=0.009) than the HIV-negative MM patients. HAART alone blocked the production of serum M-protein...

The present report describes a case of a patient with hepatitis B virus (HBV)-human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) co-infection who was treated with tenofovir disoproxil (TDF)-based highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART) and who achieved HBs antigen (Ag)/antibody (Ab) seroconversion. An 18-year-old Japanese man with HIV and HBV co-infection presented to our hospital. His CD4 count was decreased, and TDF-based HARRT was started. At 30 months after initiation of therapy, HBsAg was not detected. At 36 months after initiation of therapy, HBsAb was detected...

It is well known that patients with HIV are prone to diabetes mellitus because of the side effects of HARRT. However, whether high glucose affects the HIV infection of T cells is not clear. Recent studies have shown that upregulation of GLUT-1 renders T cells susceptible to HIV infection. We hypothesized that hyperglycemia has the potential to increase HIV infection by enhancing its entry into immune cells. The effect of high glucose on HIV entry into T cells (Jurkat cells and PBMCs) and the mechanisms involved were investigated...

INTRODUCTION: In India, it is estimated that 2.5 million people are currently living with Human Immunodeficiency virus infection (HIV) of which one million are women. Given the occurrence of oral lesions in our population, we studied the patter of these lesions with respect to the role played by gender. MATERIALS AND METHODS: 3729 consecutive patients seen over a period of 10 years (from 1998 to 2008) attending the YRG CARE (Center for AIDS Research and Education), at Chennai, India constituted the study group...

This report presents a human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) patient that developed a slowly progressive renal impairment over years under highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART). The renal biopsy showed diffuse tubulointerstitial nephritis accompanied by crystal formations that were surrounded by multinuclear giant cells. Furthermore, rod-like crystals were detected in the urinary sediments. Tenofovir and Atazanavir were thought to be the causative drugs for the renal injury. Therefore, the possibility of HARRT-induced nephrotoxicity should be considered in HIV-infected patients, even though the activity of HIV is controlled by such therapies...

Highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART) has offered a promising approach for controlling HIV-1 replication in infected individuals. However, with HARRT, HIV-1 is suppressed rather than eradicated due to persistence of HIV-1 in latent viral reservoirs. Thus, purging the virus from latent reservoirs is an important strategy toward eradicating HIV-1 infection. In this study, we discovered that the daphnane diterpene gnidimacrin, which was previously reported to have potent anti-cancer cell activity, activated HIV-1 replication and killed persistently-infected cells at picomolar concentrations...

BACKGROUND: Despite prolonged treatment with highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART), the infectious HIV-1 continues to replicate and resides latently in the resting memory CD4+ T lymphocytes, which blocks the eradication of HIV-1. The viral persistence of HIV-1 is mainly caused by its proviral DNA being either linear nonintegrated, circular nonintegrated, or integrated. Previous reports have largely focused on the dynamics of HIV-1 DNA from the samples collected with relatively long time intervals during the process of disease and HAART treatment, which may have missed the intricate changes during the intervals in early treatment...

Neurological complications associated with HIV-1 are being recognized as a common disorder in AIDS patients, especially patients with HIV-associated dementia (HAD). However, our knowledge of the complicated pathogenesis and clinical symptoms of HAD is limited by an incomplete understanding of the biology of HIV-1 in the nervous system. Therefore, this review focuses on the pathogenesis of HAD in the context of novel highly active antiretroviral therapy (HARRT) regimens.
